Manchester United beat Dutch giants Ajax 2-0 in the Europa League Final in Stockholm to secure a spot in the Champions League next season.
Paul Pogba opened the scoring thanks to a deflection from his shot in the first half, before Henrikh Mkhitaryan reacted quickest to add to United’s score in the second half to secure the club’s first ever Europa League trophy.
A pre-match minute’s silence was held in remembrance of the Manchester terror attack victims and from the first minute United looked the hungriest of the two sides and they deservedly lifted the trophy and in some way won it for the city.

@ManUtd I support Liverpool but I’m happy to see you win tonight. It can’t make up for what happened but I hope it gives Manchester a little boost.
